An Irish artist has issued a timely reminder to Americans ahead of St Patrick's Day

Know your Paddys from your patties.

A FEW YEARS AGO Ireland decided to man up and inform Americans that it’s actually Paddy’s Day, not Patty’s Day.

Maria of TwistedDoodles has whipped up a handy guide to knowing your Paddys from your patties, and we think it’ll help many people next Thursday.

And that’s your essential difference right there. Let’s make 2016 the year that Patty died.
